  • All are Gone Now

    2008 - 10.19

    I have had playmates in the days of my child hood, in my school days

    All are gone now, the old familiar faces.

    I have had laughing  times, I have had carousing times

    Drinking late smoking like a dragon

    All are gone now, the old familiar faces.

     

    I loved a woman fairest of them all

    She opened my cellar door

    She was all I had left

    I will never leave her side.

    All are gone now, all the familiar faces.

     

    I had friends, they were the kindest of friends

    Like an ingrate I left them abruptly

    For they didn’t see me anymore.

    And they set out to hurt what it was they did not understand

    All are gone now, all the familiar faces.

     

    Ghostlike I pace around the corners of memory

    Earth just seems like a desert I’m bound to traverse

    Seeking what was never there.

    I found things I wasn’t looking for

    All are gone now, all the familiar faces.

     

    I had friends that were as close as brothers

    We came from the same places

    If I could see them now

    When our anger cleared we would talk about how

    All are gone now, all the familiar faces.

     

    Some have died, most just left me

    And some were taken from me , all departed

    I could do nothing to stop the erosion 30 years can bring.

    They weren’t listening to me anymore

    All are gone now, all the familiar faces.
